The molecular mechanisms responsible for postpollination changes in floral scent emission were investigated in snapdragon cv Maryland True Pink and petunia cv Mitchell flowers using a volatile ester, methylbenzoate, one of the major scent compounds emitted by these flowers, as an example. In both species, a 70 to 75% pollination-induced decrease in(More)
Immunotoxins directed against a membrane marker of cell proliferation, transferrin receptor, were investigated to inhibit the growth of retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells in proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR). We undertook an immunocytological study in specimens of vitreous, subretinal fluid, and epiretinal membranes from patients with PVR to address(More)
Esters are important contributors to the aroma of numerous flowers and fruits. Acetate esters such as geranyl acetate, phenylethyl acetate and benzyl acetate are generated as a result of the action of alcohol acetyltransferases (AATs). Numerous homologous AATs from various plants have been characterized using in-vitro assays. To study the function of rose(More)
